Catch a Critter at Huntley Meadows

September 15, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 1:30 pm


From the Fairfax County Park Authority: If you’ve ever wondered what lives in a wetland, come to Huntley Meadows Park for the special “Catch a Critter!” event on Saturday, September 15, 2018.

Grab a net and work with a park scientist to see, touch, and study wetland creatures up close and personal. Use magnifying lenses to study their unique characteristics and find out what these little animals can tell us about their home. This rare opportunity to dip-net in the wetland is possible through the guidance of our park naturalists.

The Catch a Critter! program is designed for participants age four to adult. It runs from noon to 1:30 p.m., and the cost is $9 per person.

Huntley Meadows Park is located at 3701 Lockheed Boulevard, Alexandria, VA. For more information, call 703-768-2525 or visit
